    Re: Tiki blacklisted?your thoughts?

    It wasn't like he was coming back at the age of 30 after taking off 5 years. I'm not surprised at all that no one game him a shot.

      I resent the jerk for bad mouthing his former team, and then leaving his wife who I believe was pragnant. I really liked him prior to all this, but he has lost all respect from me. Glad he is booed when he returns. Keep it up NY fans, it is what he deserves.

        the Mara's are obviously well respected in the NFL.He wants 0 to do with Tiki Barber. I can almost see it as a respect from other owners. I understand the other stuff too but this plays a big part in it as well I bet.

          Not a bad thought. I can see where the owners didn't want this cancer on their team.

            I was privy to some inside information that Mara won't even take his calls. At least this is what I was told. Hate to sound like a gossip but it was from a good source.</P>

              [quote user="pica01"]We're you as surprized as I was that noone even brought Tiki into camp and played him in preseason?His twin is still playing.He is a very low mileage 36 yo rb who retired at the top of his game.Yet,not one team even extended a no risk,high reward invite to camp to even see if he had anything to offer.Hey,he's persona non grata to every Giant fan,but what did other teams have to lose inviting him to camp?I'm sure he would've accepted the veteran minimum from anyone who would've given him a chance.Say what you will about Tiki,but he was a great RB who at 32 was among the best RB's in the NFL.To think that no NFL team took a no risk flier to possibly catch lightning in a bottle is shocking to me.Geez,think about it.Teams bring dozens of unknown FA's into camp.Noone even gave Tiki a looksee.Yeah,32 year old RB's are done at 36.But what if they didn't play for those 4 years.Seems worth a no cost look in camp for someone,huh?I guess he burnt all NFL bridges,not just the Giants bridge.Tiki,the evil twin.Put a fumanchu on him.[/quote]

                I was a bit surprised the problem is he was a ten year vet , the min is a nice chunk. Miami brought him in for a workout. I do think if he could have been paid 250-500k someone would have took a shot on him.

                  No one wants to take a shot with tiki because every team knows that if they take him in, whenever they next play the giants, the defense will go ape**** on him...

                  I'm Commander Shepard, and this is my favorite team in the NFL.

                    Am I surprised that people are STILL making Tiki threads 6 years after he retired? Yep.

                      The term 'blacklisted' suggests that the Owners conspired to freeze him out of the league. If an Owner or GM had felt that Tiki, with his veteran salary requirements, would have given their team a better shot, someone would have made a move for him. His value was merely found to be lacking - nothing to see here.

                        I agree GT.The Mara's are well respected.And Tiki is persona non grata.I also wonder if Fassel did something the Mara's didn't like that other GM's know that we don't.Fassel's a real head scratcher not getting another HC gig,considering others less sucessful getting 2nd and even 3rd shots.

                          I dont think the mara's blackballed tiki.

                          Tiki loved their father and played his heart out for him in the memorial game.

                          If you remember Tiki was invited to the Ring of Honor.

                            Let me ask you guys this hypothetical.Assume 2 things.Tiki left under good terms like Strahan.And Bradshaw couldn't return after missing those games.Would you have had a problem if we brought Tiki in,considering he already knew the system?Just curious.

                              If AB was out , yes Tiki would have been the best FA we could have pulled. even with the drama.

                              the only issue would be TC .

                                Harooni,don't get me wrong.Tiki was the best RB in Giants history and always played his heart out.It's how he left and what he's said since that I wonder about.Is he in the ring of honor?We usually have a halftime ceremony for that.I don't see that ever happening.
